MediMatrix Browser

Visualization of a Knowledge Base of Patient Cases in the GP Domain


The MediMatrix Browser visualizes patient cases from general practicioners. The matrix visualization facilitates to recognize connections between medical topics and the patient cases. According to the “details on demand” pattern the majority of information appears only on demand to keep the visualization slim. Additionally with a single click, the user is able to see related cases to a case that’s unclear or interesting to them.

The MediMatrix browser was realized within the KOLEGEA project at the Humboldt-Viadrina School of Governance.
